Install Zim 0.62 under Windows 8.1 x64 with every plugins and dependencies (step-by-step) (FIXED)



Sorry for my previous mail, I sent it by an accident, I didn't finished translation.

I always had problems with installing Zim from source, so I need a good
tutorial. But I didn't find any, which contains description for
dependencies, especially for spell-checking under python 2.7. This is my
way, and it works for me.

Download only packages with UPPERCASE letters, others can install by other way!
